As Stepmums we can often feel we are out of control of our own lives. Stepmumspace is thrilled to be able to offer a selection of bespoke workshops.

Created and hosted by Katie Harrison and internationally accredited transformational coach Jennie Norrish, our workshops use a combination of mentorship, coaching and psychology-based storytelling tools to help women obtain the clarity, power and contentment they need to succeed - despite living in a world that can seem against them.

Reading material

There are a lot of "stepmum" books out there. The one we'd advise anyone entering into a relationship with a man with children to buy is "Stepmonster" by Dr Wednesday Martin. It is available here

You can read more about Katie's take on being a stepmum in her recent piece for 'Grazia' here

If you have any reading recommendations for us we'd love to hear them!
